Friday Frills

A Dedication to Friends, Old and New, in the Blogosphere and Here on Earth...

I can't give you the solutions to all of life's problems, doubts, or fears.
But I can listen to you and together we will search for answers.
I can't change your past with all its heartache and pain, nor the future with its untold stories.
But I can be there now when you need me to care.
I can't keep your feet from stumbling.

I can only offer my hand, that you may grasp it and not fall.

Your joys, triumphs, success, and happiness are not mine,
Yet I can share in your laughter.
Your decisions in life are not mine to make, nor to judge,
I can only support you, encourage you, and help you when you ask.
I can't prevent you from falling away from friendship, from your values, from me.
I can only pray for you, talk to you, step aside and wait for you to change your mind.

I can't give you boundaries which I have determined for you,
But I can give you the room to change, room to grow, room to be yourself.
I can't keep your heart from breaking and hurting,
But I can cry with you and help you pick up the pieces and put them back in place.
I can't tell you who you are.
I can only be your friend.
